Actar in Tokyo – Final Day: A Lucky Star New Year

January 1, 2010

Akemashte Omedetou!!! Happy New Year! The final installment of Actar in Tokyo ironically takes place out of Tokyo in the quaint little prefecture of Saitama. Don’t know the significance of Saitama? Read on!

Being the New Year and all, I decided to spend the day in traditional Japanese fashion, by visiting a shrine. However, that would hardly be epic enough for me, so, the shrine I visited was none other than the one where our favorite purple haired, twin sistered miko work, Washinomiya Shrine! (^o^)

That’s right! Saitama is the setting of everyone’s (mostly) favorite slice-of-life Anime, Lucky Star.

You could say that this visit is one of the main reason for choosing this time to come to Japan. What better way to celebrate the very first ‘official’ Anime I watched that got me hooked on Japanese Modern Visual Culture, Lucky Star!

Let’s GO! (Caution, relentless onslaught of pictures ahead!!!)

During the course of this article, you’ll notice that there are some screencaps of funny fansub moments. Be advised, there is bit of crude humor.

I know this article is slightly lengthy, but this is what I strongly feel about fansubbers.
